Even though everyone uses portals to go anywhere planes are still used for various functions.
All of the planes of the future use hoover technology to take off and land. The smaller more aerobatic planes can fly vertically as well as horizontally.
The stand military dart ship is a 1 person space fighter plane that can create a 5 second drop portal for translocating between places or it can go through a full-sized orbital portal for longer range travel.
The Dart Ships are designed for multiple purposes not just combat.
|Military’s favourite, all-purpose, dart fighters, designed to do a whole range of jobs from combat to light transport and emergency rescue work.|
New Experimental Planes
|The prototypes were specially designed to provide air support for the archaeologists working on Fortuna, so have wings that can fold back in flight to fit through standard-sized freight portals.|
Created for exploring Zeta Sector and the planet Fortuna, the new planes are a slightly slimmer and smaller version of the military dart ships. Additionally the wings retract and expand automatically, this enables the planes to fly through a standard freight portal. The wings will retract or expand while in flight, allowing the pilot to fly directly through the portals. Once the wings have reached their full expansion, a shield is activated. Keon helped to create the shield that will display laser light sculptors to be able to communicate if necessary.
They also create 5 second drop portals and fly well in both atmosphere and in space.
The specialist transports used to move Solar Array Panels from planet to planet or sector to sector are skeletally thin and very long.
Standard Solar Array Transport Ship
Each Solar array usually have two standard "solar array transport" ships, the backup ship is often cannibalized for parts to keep the main one functioning.
|You may think it silly, but the Earth solar arrays have a tradition of using the ancient star names for our transport ships,|
The transport ships assigned to a Solar array have a large door near the front on each side and a massively large cargo hatch at the rear of the plane. There is also a couple of small escape hatches positioned around the plane.
These are the ships that were modified to fly in atmosphere and land on Earth in Earth Girl during the Carrington Event.
|The solar array ships are just used to move sections of solar sail, they aren’t designed to enter an atmosphere,” I said, totally grazzed. “Nothing is. Fighters and dart ships use conventional or drop portals to reach their destinations. Anything bigger has to be portalled in pieces, and assembled after arrival..."|
|After the Solar 5 incident, we modified some spaceships to be able to enter planetary atmospheres in an emergency and land safely rather than depending on portalling to their destination.|
The "Lifeboats" are currently kept in Alpha Sector and would be portalled to where needed to rescue trapped Solar Array personal.
The military maintains many of the same specialist plans that are in for civilian use, but the crucial difference is that most of the military plans have the 5 second drop portal technology installed, where the civilian planes do not.

Used by both Military and archaeologists.
